    So i have one silkie that hatched almost 24 hours ago. I just took it out of the bator and noticed its eyes are close. I can see the eyes moving under the eyelid and i believe they were open yesterday. Is this normal or is there something wrong? Also it has a bump on the top of its head. Does that mean it has a vaulted skull? Thank you.
